Gold Price Hits 3-Month High

From the beginning of the year there has been some anti-synchronisation between gold and the dollar, which usually have a strong negative correlation: as the dollar rises, the general rule is that gold falls and vice-versa. However, since the beginning of the year, the DXY and gold have developed a positive correlation by both being in upward channels. Although, if we take a shorter time frame on the graph, we can this golden dollar rule not being broken; since the start of this week, a rise in gold has meant a fall for the dollar.

Euro Expected to Rise to 1.0895 before the Fed Meeting

My euro expectations were fulfilled on Tuesday. The euro updated its maximum against the USD during European trades, dropping to 1.0818 and then returning to 1.0868. The only thing that didn’t fit with my forecast was what happened at the end: the close price was higher than I thought it would be.
